Braves Matt Kemp off to hot slugging start | MLB.com

In 2017, Kemp’s xwOBA is .399, and his actual wOBA is .416, and now you can see what we’re talking about. At .399, his combination of batted ball contact and strikeouts and walks has very truly been a big step up over last year, one of the 25 best in baseball, ahead of stars like Buster Posey or Francisco Lindor. But instead of underperforming as he had in the [ast two years, Kemp has overperformed this year by 17 points. You can see that in his .398 BABIP, which is 100 points higher than last year. He’s hitting better, and he’s also getting fortunate.
